I just realized this was a well-timed entry with Thanksgiving coming up next week, but I have some much needed thanking to be done to my good friends on DeviantArt!
I don't want to name specific people just because I'm afraid of leaving anyone out, but I owe an ENORMOUS thanks to everyone who voted for my new film The Gift in the Golden Panda film festival ^_^ This is the first time I've ever really tried to "campaign" for myself for anything outside of Facebook, and I was incredibly encouraged by all the people willing to take the time out to support me I'm sure you know who you are, and if there's ever any way I can return the favor I would be more than happy to do so!
I'm not sure when I'll hear any news back about the festival winners, but The Gift itself will premiere on DeviantArt one week from today! And if you're getting tired of seeing me post nothing but foxes on here all the time, I am still working on new things as well One of my next projects is a collaboration with a very good friend of mine, a talented aspiring musician who goes by M9Y9. Here's a tiny peek into the music video I'm making for her, which is a little bit different than anything I've done up to this point.
If you're interested in hearing some of her work ahead of time, I'm sure she would be more than grateful if you checked her out, and maybe threw her a like/subscription or two along the way You can find her at one of the links below:
And here's her most recent upload if you'd like a quick sample of her amazing voice and talent
I also have a lot of other things planned ahead, including a few projects I haven't quite decided on yet... Im considering doing something Star Warsy just to get involved with all the Force Awakening happenings going down, so I'd be interested to hear input on that if anyone's got any I'm not especially huge on fan art, but it could be a fun project.
And finally, I just wanted to extend a thank you to the community of DeviantArt in general I was actually discussing this with someone the other day, but I've found DeviantArt to be one of the most supportive and pleasant communities online, or at least that I've ever come across. To me that seems like a really rare thing to find on the internet, and I love seeing the way people here generally respect and encourage one another. I'm sure there's still some negativity that goes on here and there, but I've only ever seen examples of it that are few and far between. Overall, I think the people here are great, and I know for my part it's made me feel a lot more comfortable with putting my art out there and trying new things, which is really what a place like this should be about. So thank you to all the good people who make that possible!!
So, if you read all of this, thank you for reading as well! XD And I wish everyone who celebrates a very safe happy holiday this upcoming week!
More to come soon!
